Electronic Circuit Breaker Embeds Intelligence into System

April 4, 2022
The CAPAROC electronic circuit breaker system from Phoenix Contact facilitates designing an intelligent system with communication.

The CAPAROC electronic circuit breaker system uses data-driven power modules to customize overcurrent protection. With numerous feed-in power modules, circuit breakers, potential distribution modules and current rails, CAPAROC makes it easy to design an intelligent system with communication. The power feed-in module, available in status reset or PROFINET versions, is the “brain” of the system. The status reset uses standard digital input/output to communicate the status of the breakers and to reset tripped channels. The PROFINET power module allows complete control and monitoring of the breakers.

The CAPAROC modules, designed for 12 to 24 V DC applications, include features such as cascaded channel start-up, intelligent tripping, active current limitation and intelligent load shedding. The system includes remote diagnostics and remote reset, increasing safety and reducing downtime. The tricolored LEDs indicate each channel’s operating state. The circuit breaker modules are available in 1-, 2- and 4-channel options.
